Dingux Installation Help with ILI9338 on Win7 x64
« on: May 20, 2012, 07:27:02 am »
Hey guys, new to the Dingoo scene here and I've been having trouble getting Dingux to install correctly on my a320. I've used a number of guides and have done a fair bit of research but I'm coming up short. Hoping someone here can guide me in the right direction. I'm following the guide here:

http://www.dingoo-scene.com/TheCompleteidiotsGuidetoDinguxWindoze.htm

And on step 3 of flash firmware, both cmd commands run correctly, but the second causes my Dingoo to flip out. The Dingux screen comes up (with the Linux penguin), and the scripts begin to run, but eventually I get an error that says:

FATAL: cannot open /boot/rootsf (2)
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Then the Dingoo starts to flash and can only be fixed with a hard reset. My SD card is empty and has been formatted as FAT32 with a single partition. The LCD model is 9338, and I am using the ILI9338 zImage file from the most recent package (dingux_system_20091022_plus_ILI9338). I disabled driver signature enforcement and the usbtool driver is working properly. I'm not sure where to go from here. Is rootsf supposed to be on the SD card before flashing the firmware? The description of the error leads me to believe so, but all of the guides say otherwise.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

Just realized I posted this in Dingoo Official Firmware instead of Dingux. If a mod could move it, that would be great.

You have to rename rootfs

Your mentioned guide is pretty outdated. I try to summarize the steps with the latest software.

1. Install the latest boot loader on your NAND from here (check README inside for details)...

http://code.google.com/p/dingoo-linux/downloads/list

The latest version does not show the Linux penguin, just a Dingux logo.

2. Install Science's latest kernel and root filesystem on your SD card from here...

http://sience.schattenkind.net/dingoo/SiENcE_downloads.htm

The kernel and root filesystem must be named /zImage and /rootfs (case sensitive). These files must be copied first to the SD card (just after format).

3. Install Qbert's and Zear's minimal local pack on your SD card from here...

http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,116,477

Now you should be able to boot Dingux (hold SELECT while powering on) and Gmenu2x should appear. You can install emulators and games to /local on your SD card.

Note:

I had troubles with some SD cards after formatting them with Windows (kernel not found or rootfs cannot be mounted).

The way it always works for me, is to format the card with Linux...

Code: [Select]
mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n A320_EXT /dev/mmcblk0p1
Or like this on a partitionless card...

Code: [Select]
mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n A320_EXT /dev/mmcblk0

You're welcome.  8)

PS: For arcade games, make sure you don't miss FBA320. Best arcade emulator IMHO.

Really thanks yoshi41, i can suceess from your comment

for 32G micro sd, i have problem for same that mount error

so I installed centos6 by vmware in windows7 32bit, and try to usb connect

in centos6 linux, I found /dev/sdb for 32G micro sd

so, I delete and make new partition like this

$> fdisk /dev/sdb
d => 1  (delete partion)
n => 1 (make new partition)

$> mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n 32G_SD /dev/sdb1

and I disconnect usb in vmware, and install dual boot and dingoos linux in SD card

Glad it helped. :)

Once you installed the dual boot loader, you can also setup OpenDingux on a separate card...
